Gartner: not all ITAD partners are alike
A fresh report from prominent market research company Gartner identifies a number of factors making refurbishing even more relevant and complicated than before. Data security is more and more becoming a board-level issue. At the same time data is more and more regulated by laws like GDPR. This is a trend that will favour professional ITAD companies with the necessary know how, licenses and processes.
Gartner identifies three tasks ITAD executives should pay special attention to: data sanitization, transportation logistics and recycling. “These three represent the greatest risk in the ITAD process, and they should be handled by an experienced, well-vetted ITAD service vendor”, says the report.
